You can't beat these rods for the price. I currently own 5 and love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rolltide05 WOW, what a great rod.
I have fallen in love with the Falcon Cara. Light and super sensative, I can hold it all day and feel every single bite. But I have to say that my favorite aspect of this rod is it's looks. The new, redesigned for 08' Cara's cork butted handle is very nice and of a very high quality. My favorite part of the rod is the great looking matte black rod blank itself. It is just a rod that looks very expensive. Everything about these is what I look for when buying a rod. Falcon, please don't ever change these Cara's b/c I want to be able to buy them forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tightline07 GREAT ROD
I usually fish with Gloomis but i got a Cara T7 heavy 7'3" as a gift and absolutely love it. Super light and sensitive. Hands down for the price it beats Gloomis in my book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FriscoKid Best casting rod I have owned!
This is a great rod! I now have five of them. They have replaced all of my other rods for casting.
Excellent sensitivity, amazing feel, and they can throw a mile. This is a great rod. Try one of these at least once, and you won't be disappointed.

Great for pitching plastics and jigs. Works as a Carolina Rig rod and more. Great all-around rod that is light and has great sensitivity. Not too stiff. Can pitch 1/4oz weights easily. Will pull fish out of standing timber once you get them on.
Putting 2 great products together would be a great idea. Ive owned energy's and both of those rods. I believe they would work great together. I have a quantum smoke on my T7 and I wish it was an energy.
The reaction series rods have a slower action than the T7. These rods are designed for reaction type baits, i.e. crankbaits, spinnerbaits, etc. These rods have a slower action so that when a fish bites one of these faster moving baits it gives it time to inhale it instead of the angler setting the hook and pulling it away from it. I have a few of the reaction series and a few of the T7's and love both. They are technique specific and cover the specified technique perfect. My favorite is the Mike McCelland heavy cover rod. It's perfect. Allows you to pick up to see if a bite is a fish or just cover without pulling your bait out of the fish's mouth. These are by far my favorite rods to fish with.
I have never used the Reaction series, but I have seen them in stores. I own 5 of the Cara T7's and I cannot tell a difference between the two. If you are thinking about getting one you will not regret you decision. This is by far one of the best rods I have ever fished with !!!!
